"The process of creating the art work does not look grand from the side for the observer. Sometimes i run across the opinion that the process of creating art works should look like passionate dance :) Maestro with dissheveled hair is running to the canvas and drop some paint onto the white space of the canvas. Then he jupms back, looks what he has done and run to the canvas again creaming like toreador on corrida. Well, no the reality is not as exciting... Sometimes i sit still for hours, making little marks on the paper.
But sometimes interesting pictures (i hope) come out off the hard work."
Editorial staff of "Zazerkalje Almanac" has published the album of the graphic art works by Anatoly Kudravcev

My history - I remember the very first time I met an artist. I was was summer... Russian South... in a little town called Evpatoria... Black Sea splashing green waives on a pebbled beach.
